In boxing they call it the tale of the tape.  In motorcycle accidents I guess you could call it the range of the rash.  How much damage did you take from the road?  In the case of my recent deer encounter, the amount of road rash damage that my wife and I incurred was inversely proportional to the amount of protective gear we were wearing.

I was wearing purpose-made riding pants from BMW Motorrad that had both knee and hip CE rated armor.  Sheri had on blue jeans.  I walked away with no scrapes on my legs, her legs have some pretty serious scrapes.
